Riding is a solitary experience
I feel connected to my surroundings when I ride, but I’m also very alone in my helmet. I think it’s the nature of the experience, and that is probably why I’ve never felt the desire to join a motorcycle club. However, there are some locals in the Kawasaki Concours Owners Group (COG-NW) who are having a wreching session at the end of this month. I think I’ll go. I’m not quite ready to tear the bike apart to work on it, but it would be interesting to see what the local COGers are about.
